Nissan GTR dethroned by 911 Turbo (VIDEO)

By Nic_low on 19 Apr 2014


The Nissan GTR is commonly known as the 'King of drag race' with its potent off-the-line performance. Credits to its clever all-wheel drive system, the GTR can effectively put down its 545bhp and 630Nm of torque on the drag strip. Recently, however, British publication EVO took out the GTR and pit it against Porsche's new 911 Turbo - and found otherwise.
 
In comparison, the 991 gen Turbo has 520 horses - 25 fewer than the GTR. But it weighs 1,665kg - compared to the GTR's 1,746kg. That could have given it a slight advantage.

What a joke!!. Turbo against non-turbo.

Why don't they try 911 turbo against 911 non-turbo or carburator car against fuel-injector car.

Please try again when GTR comes equip with a turbo. Then it is fair competition.

It's actually somewhat a fair fight, cos both are 3.8L 6-cylinder twin turbocharged.

 

But the GTR looks a little heavier though.

the GTR is Twin Turbo charged, and so is the faster 911 Turbo.
